Creating Your ETS Testing Account

If you register online

  • You must create an ETS testing account the first time you access the ETS online registration system.
  • You may use a different user name and password for your ETS testing account than you did on your TEA account; however, all other information must be identical to the information you entered in your TEA account. Be sure to enter your full name exactly as it appears on your ID.
  • Go to “Your Account,” and follow the guidelines for creating an account in the ETS registration system. You must create an account in the ETS registration system. This is where you will register to test. You cannot register to test through your account on the TEA site.
  • You must provide your TEA ID number, your first and last name and your date of birth. Charter school and PACT candidates are given a TEA ID number during the process of creating their testing account.

If you register by phone or by mail

If you register by phone or mail, your ETS testing account will be created for you using the information you supply over the phone or on your paper registration form. This information must match the information in your TEA account. If it does not, your registration cannot be processed and you will be unable to test. NOTE: You must have your TEA ID number ready when you call.

Once your ETS testing account has been created, you will be sent an email that will include a user name for your ETS testing account. To get a password, go to the ETS TExES website and select “Your Account.” Because you already have a user name, you will access your account as an existing user. Go to login and enter your user name; then select “Forgot Password.” A temporary password will be emailed to your address on file. You can then log in to your account with your user name and temporary password. You will be prompted to change your temporary password when you log in.

After you create your account

You will be able to:

  • register for any test you are approved to take
  • view your registration and make changes if needed
  • reschedule or cancel your registration
  • print (or reprint) your admission ticket(s)
  • place orders for services, such as score review
  • check the status of previously placed orders
  • view and/or print your score report
  • change your password
  • change options for receiving text/email test prep messages
  • return to your account at any time

You cannot update your TEA Educator Profile through your testing account in the ETS registration system. You must go to the TEA website to update your TEA Educator Profile.

Be sure to record your user name and password and keep them in a secure place for future use. Remember that the information entered in your ETS TExES testing account must match the information in your TEA Educator Profile. Step-by-step registration directions are available under “Register.” (See “New User Set-up Quick Start Guide” and “Test Registration Quick Start Guide.”)
